Forecast consumption with descriptive characteristics



We’re having an issue in the SNP interactive planning. We are using descriptive characteristics & consumption group to consume the forecast at customer level. The valuation of the descriptive characteristics works correctly for sales orders and forecast in the interactive planning, the system shows the icon with the valuation of the
descriptive characteristics and both planning elements (forecast and sales orders) have the same valuation. The error is that in the standard key figure Total Demand the sales orders don’t consume the forecast. The standard macro Stock balance does not work properly in the calculation of the standard auxiliary key figure DMDCON Demand (Forecast/Sales Order).

However in the product view /SAPAPO/RRP3 the forecast is correctly consumed by the sales orders at customer level based on the valuation of the descriptive characteristics.

Is it necessary to make any change in the macro Stock balance to take into consideration the descriptive characteristics for the forecast consumption?

Thanks in advance. Regards
